step 1: Cleanse
Begin with The Pendulum Potion to cleanse face, neck, and décolleté day and night (note: this gorgeous formula also doubles as a body & hair oil!). Massage into dry skin, focusing on areas of makeup or congestion. Wet hands and continue massage, then place our warm, damp, Facial Steam Cloth over face and neck. Press and repeat until skin is soft and cleansed before rinsing.
step 2: Exfoliate
Every 2nd or 3rd day, introduce The Clean Dirt to brighten and reduce stagnation. Check out this Instagram post for important tips to make the very most of your experience. Blend The Clean Dirt with The Pendulum Potion on days your skin feels stressed, sensitive, or if you have active outbreaks in need of more delicate care.
step 3: Mask
Up to three times weekly, indulge in The Problem Solver to ward off hormonal breakouts, reduce discoloration, and calm inflammation. Be sure to use enough powder to reach a rich, bubbling mousse consistency - at least ½ -1 true Tablespoon - blending with just shy of equal parts water. Watch a great demo video here. The Problem Solver makes a great spot treatment as well, particularly when blended with The Jasmine Garden.
step 4: Moisturize
Follow every facial cleansing or treatment with The Blue Cocoon and/or The Youth Dew. For extra nutrition, double up morning and night. Always massage both into WET skin directly following rinsing, while skin is still warm and most receptive.
Drench your every blossoming inch with our multi-tasker, The Pendulum Potion.
Treat any stretch marks, sore nipples, or any areas of discomfort or irritation with The Blue Cocoon.
step 5: Mist
Complete your cleansing ritual by saturating skin with The Jasmine Garden and continuing your massage. This unique formula is designed to enhance penetration of the fat and water-soluble nutrients, while delivering another layer of hydration. The sandwiching effect of water-oil-water is what makes this so incredibly effective. Mist throughout the day to calm and refresh skin, keeping you soft and comfortable.
Breathe deep, you got this, mama. :).
Pregnancy and the chapters surrounding it can be some of the most magical, and simultaneously stressful, of our lives. Pair this with the incessant fear of getting it wrong somehow, and we can get ourselves all worked up.
You are in a safe place. My entire collection is a gorgeous treat in this time and beyond, and you can indulge without anxiety.
Note that many of the conditions you may experience in this period often pass all on their own as hormones return to their regular state. This includes hormonal acne, melasma, “pregnancy mask”, rashes, and eczema. Practice love and patience and try to avoid the urge to rush into any aggressive treatments or protocols. You may find that this becomes entirely unnecessary given time and proper care of your skin in the months ahead.
Enjoy the book-ends of your days, these simple time-outs that feed and nourish You. This is more and more vital as our families stretch and as we tend to put constriction on our time for this kind of self care. Now is exactly when you need these moments the most. Take it. And enjoy every precious second.
